Cold weekend days

Winter has finally reached our shores and this weekend was one of the coldest this year. When I say cold, I mean freezing cold. We are plagued with high levels of humidity here so 20 degrees can feel like 10, at least in our flat. It got so cold and rainy this weekend that we were forced to stay indoors most of Saturday. So we took the opportunity to give the six little mice a welcome tea and cheese party.

Each little mouse was given a cupcake and a piece of one of Maia’s favourite cheeses. Their table manners were excellent! 
Squeak, Maia’s favourite mouse (which is seriously competing with Lotta for the position of Favourite and Best Soft Toy) didn’t leave her side.

We also played shop. I was impressed by Maia’s selling techniques and her impeccable customer service.

We made it just in time for the grand opening of the shop. There was the cutting of the ribbon…
…and welcome finger food.


The selection of all things sparkly and cute was too much to resist. We spent all our money on bracelets, rings and miniature puppies.
We were even given hand-written receipts.


These sunglasses were a steal at 5c. He just had to have them!
